Bonds likes his numbers better than Babe Ruth May 08 10:53 AM US/Eastern.

A boastful Barry Bonds said if he passes Babe Ruth that his place in history would be secure.

Asked if he would consider himself better than Ruth if he vaults ahead of the New York Yankees legend for second place on the all-time home run list, Bonds said: "I don't know yet, but the numbers speak for themselves."

Barry's place in history may be secure for any number of reasons; but not for being better than the Babe. I would have to see a few more pitching wins in Bond's stats to rank him above Mr. Ruth, the steals not withstanding.

Babe Ruth is a legend. Barry Bonds is infamous.

No, they don't. Ruth didn't juice.

We're supposed to not say anything because Bonds never failed a drug test. So officially he never broke any rules. Just don't get it, because you look at him, certain things are obvious.

Ruth didn't juice, but he did play during the segregation era.

I suppose if I were a cheat and race hustler like Bonds, I might like my numbers better too. Numbers Racket.
